September 30-October 6,2013 we have what could be a surprising New Moon in Libra. New moons are great for setting your intentions and intiating new situations. Libra is all about relationships. You may suddenly meet someone out of the ordinary that you have been waiting for your whole life. Or, you might be totally done with an imbalanced connection of some kind. Either way expect to be caught by surprise. Though I suppose its not much of a surprise if you are expecting it. Such is the gift of Astrology, being forewarned is forearmed.
Tuesday is a notable day with a difficult square between the Sun and transformative Pluto. Pluto is not satisfied with the superficial, Pluto digs deep, burrows into the depths of our psyches to untangle any repressed emotions we might have. We repress what we can’t handle, but to keep things repressed stifles our life force. So though we might not be able to handle things at certain times in our life. We can count on Pluto making sure we deal with it at some point. With the Sun and Pluto square each other it is like our identity is at odds with this repressed material. Which is probably why we suppressed it in the first place. We are being challenged to integrate what we could not handle before. We gain an amazing sense of personal strength through this process. It is always best to lean into whatever changes are taking place in your life. If you avoid what you need to grow life has a way of forcing it on you. Things happen to you, seemingly beyond your control. You get dumped or fired or some other situation you would never choose. In the end it’s always for the best. You hated the job for ages, and you stopped respecting your partner years ago. In the end it is for the best- you are liberated and transformed- even if you cried for three weeks straight in the process.
Thursday, not even 24 hours before the new moon in Libra the Sun is in another difficult position with rebel change maker Uranus. You may feel like being accommodating, thoughtful and considerate, it’s a nice idea in theory- But Uranus, with its forthright rebellious nature may have you shocking people with rude or crude or unusually honest behavior. Liberation is the key word. And, also innovation. Be cautious and as thoughtful as possible with the Uranus energy in action- accidents can happen- but slow thoughtful behaviour can almost always avoid such things.
Friday, October fourth at 5:34 pm PST the moon with be New in Libra. Learning balance is always important in Libra energy. Is it fair? Is it just? Equality is key. Any situation that is not balanced in nature will make itself known. If we are a part of an unbalanced situation we are loosing energy, or stealing it from someone, or something else. Which is not the best way to gain momentum and move to the next level. Is your next step a step up?
New moons are our monthly chance to restate our intentions. Issues of relationships are often paramount now. So, if you need a new love interest in the movie of your life now would be time to put it out there. Get out and mingle. But is really can assist any relationship at all, friends, coworkers, family members can all benefit from a little improvement- now you can see how.
Uranus and Pluto or both in difficult relationship with this new moon. Which could indicate some tricky territory to maneuvour. Shocking discoveries of hidden material. We could suddenly realize how we really feel about something. You may have just been going along thinking all was well when suddenly- Bamb, you can’t stand the people you’ve been hanging out with. Or a disruptive but intrigueing individual shows up in your world. Pushing your comfort zone. We all interact differently with this energy but this is the gist of it.
